VarSifter: Visualizing and analyzing exome-scale sequence variation data on a desktop computer.

Bioinformatics. 2011 Dec 30;

Authors: Teer JK, Green ED, Mullikin JC, Biesecker LG

Abstract
SUMMARY: VarSifter is a graphical software tool for desktop computers that allows investigators of varying computational skills to easily and quickly sort, filter, and sift through sequence variation data. A variety of filters and a custom query framework allow filtering based on any combination of sample and annotation information. By simplifying visualization and analyses of exome-scale sequence variation data, this program will help bring the power and promise of massively-parallel DNA sequencing to a broader group of researchers.Availability and Implementation: VarSifter is written in Java, and is freely available in source and binary versions, along with a User Guide, at http://research.nhgri.nih.gov/software/VarSifter/. CONTACT: mullikin@mail.nih.gov SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Additional figures and methods available online at the journal's website.
